Brazilian striker Gustavo of Jeonbuk Hyundai joined in the summer of 2020, his debut season, and contributed to the team’s championship by scoring 5 goals and 2 assists in 14 games in the second half. He was also very active in the 2021 season with 15 goals and 5 assists in 34 games. He was the clear protagonist of the team’s victory.
Gustavo, who took off as a signboard of Jeonbuk, started to lose pace from last season. He failed to score in double digits with 8 goals and 4 assists. Jeonbuk was unable to lift the championship trophy while the main striker faltered. It was worse this year. He only scored 1 goal in 10 K-League 1 games. He failed to fulfill his role as a foreign striker who should be responsible for scoring the most points on the team. Team performance also declined.
Gustavo is a sincere and diligent striker. Even if he is at the forefront, he quickly descends to the defensive camp and his dedicated play is excellent. In 2020-2021, he was the most loved player by fans because he was responsible for scoring and assisting in his unique vigorous activity radius. Even when he failed to score, Gustavo’s dedication and involvement in defense were applauded. However, the striker who couldn’t score had no choice but to become a ‘Gireuk’.

Leaving behind the decline, Gustavo led Jeonbuk to a 5-2 victory by scoring 4 goals alone in the FA Cup Round of 16 match against Paju Citizens Soccer Team held at Jeonju World Cup Stadium on the 24th. Jeonbuk could not finish the game within the regular time, but Gustavo made a big success and advanced to the quarterfinals.
Although it was driven against a team belonging to K3, which is equivalent to the 3rd division, it is definitely encouraging that Gustavo scored 4 goals in one game. If Gustavo recovers his sense of goal, Jeonbuk can take the recent good trend to the next level. Jeonbuk has recorded 2 wins and 2 draws in 4 K-League 1 matches after acting coach Kim Doo-hyun led the team. It has overcome the sluggishness in the beginning and is on the rise. Play that dominates and leads the game in the midfield is reviving, so if Gustavo increases his scoring power, Jeonbuk’s ‘Dak Gong’ will be able to gain strength.
Even Cho Kyu-seong has recovered from his injury and is back. Either Gustavo or Cho Kyu-seong must come to life so that Jeonbuk can maintain the current good trend for a long time.
In the case of Gustavo, he has the experience of showing off excellent scoring ability in the first or second year, so he can show a better look if he finds confidence. A rush in the FA Cup could have a butterfly effect on Gustavo, Jeonbuk, and even the entire K-League 1.
